"ER meets Seinfeld."
"Hats off to the Healthy Humorist® and his timely message about incorporating more laughter into our lives! From his opening line he had the audience of 2000 members laughing, and there was no lag time during his entire 60-minute presentation. His delivery and comic timing were impeccable. His material is clever, clean, and insightful. He's a Jerry Seinfeld of the medical profession with his hilarious observations. As one coder said to me later, 'Our jobs are so stressful. It felt good to sit there and laugh!' If it were up to me, Dr. Nieder would be my choice for a keynote every year. We can all stand to lighten up and enjoy ourselves a little more, and that message came through loud and clear in the presentation."
--M.M., Speaker Coordinator, American Academy of Professional Coders

Thanks also for taking the time to research our daily activities and weave some of the widely used acronyms and Tyson sayings into your presentation. That made the program uniquely ours and gave it a hilarious personal touch. I literally had tears running down my cheeks, and I was not alone."

"Dr. Brad served as the post-dinner entertainment for our physician leadership group, their spouses and and our corporate leaders, with booming laughs echoing through the auditorium throughout the night. He delivered a clean, hysterical, thought-provoking message during the one-hour performance. He was able to take a usually stuffy physician group and allow them to laugh at themselves and each other. I received an overwhelming number of comments from attendees that Dr. Brad was the most engaging comedic performer they had ever seen. Dr. Brad receives my highest recommendation for anyone searching for an outstanding humorist, especially those in the healthcare industry."

"As I was sitting in the audience during your presentation one of my colleagues passed me a note that said, 'one of the best keynotes ever.' As meeting planners, we see a lot of keynote speakers, so that is high praise. Many people stopped me after the session ended to ask how they could hire you to speak to their organizations. It was fun to share some belly laughs, giggles, and even a few groans ... You are definitely on my short list and I will share your information...I hope our paths will cross again."

"I chose Dr. Brad to end our national conference, thinking “What a great way to close out our sessions on a positive note!” Well, I was not disappointed! Dr. Brad’s presentation was truly one of the highlights of our meeting. We asked him to speak for 60 minutes and what an amazing 60 minutes it was. Dr. Brad was engaging, informative, energetic and kept the audience laughing the entire time. He instantly builds a connection with his audience, even including them as part of his engagement. Our audience was made up of a wide variety of folks from many types of backgrounds and from all over the country, and he appealed to them all. As the meeting planner, I had the opportunity to review all conference evaluations and the feedback from attendees was unanimous – Dr. Brad was phenomenal! Lastly, I feel it important to note that not only was the quality of his work outstanding, but I found Dr. Brad Nieder a wonderful person to work with in my role as a planner. He was responsive, flexible and met all timelines I required. He spends significant time planning and personalizes his presentation to his audience. I cannot say enough in support of Brad and I look forward to being a part of his audience and laughing with him again soon. After all, 'Laughter is The Best Medicine.'"

"It is my pleasure to whole-heartedly recommend Dr. Brad Nieder as a speaker. Dr. Brad provided the closing remarks for our annual Chapter Leaders Conference ... Typically the closing session is a difficult one to attract attendees--like many conferences, we tend to have high levels of attrition at the end of the event. Not so with Dr. Brad--his materials provided in advance were compelling and clever and ... created a buzz of anticipation among our attendees. We had a higher attendance rate for the closing session than we have seen in several years. His session delivered on the promise--Brad took the time to understand our audience and provided a program that was universally appealing while tailored to their interests. The evaluations were outstanding ... As a meeting planner, I also give Brad high marks as a professional. He was responsive, prompt and incredibly easy to work with. It is a rare combination of talent and professionalism that make Brad such a wonderful speaker."
--S.R., Director of Chapter Relations, Financial Planning Association
"It is with immense pleasure that I would recommend Dr. Brad Nieder as a speaker for your event ... The Healthy Humorist® was the perfect prescription for our crowd ... By taking a different approach and adding humor into such a serious topic, I feel that people got more out of the message than they have in the past. Brad received rave reviews on all of the evaluations, with many of the participants asking to have him back next year. I enjoyed sitting back and watching the crowd having such a great time and laughing at a heart healthy event. Brad was very easy to work with and a joy and professional throughout the entire process. If you are looking for a great speaker that is going to make your crowd laugh and enjoy your event, Dr. Brad Nieder is your man."

"Your keynote presentation for our recent Campaign for Quality was a resounding success! You provided the perfect introduction to this annual conference, and from the feedback received thus far, it was the most enjoyed keynote in our nine years of presenting this event. Everyone left with a smile on their face and a renewed spirit of enthusiasm in their heart. You are a phenomenally talented comedian with an amazing ability to connect with the people who serve in and around healthcare and a genuine gift for clean and refreshing comedy. Thanks for making our kick-off presentation a truly memorable occasion for us all. We will definitely have you back!"
--D.K., CMO, Faxton Saint Luke's Healthcare
"Brad Nieder was our keynote speaker at the Wisconsin Workers' Compensation Forum this October. The forum consisted of over 500 people … who were continuously laughing. When the evaluation sheets came back Brad received all 5s which is the best you can get … (Some people added plus signs next to the 5s.) … Many people added comments such as, "Awesome", "Terrific", "This was the best keynote you've had." … People said they don’t know how we are going to get a better keynote for next year … The WI Workers' Compensation committee would definitely recommend him to people looking for a good laugh at a fair price."

"You really hit a home run with your 'Laughter is the Best Medicine' presentation to our group of health care leaders at Poudre Valley Health System. Of the 267 completed surveys, 237 of them ranked your presentation as the most valuable part of the meeting. Here is a sample of the MANY favorable comments we received: 'fantastic,' 'awesome,' 'wonderful message,' 'good advice,' 'just what we needed,' 'I haven't laughed that much in a long time,' 'the laughter was invaluable,' 'really made me feel good.' It was great to look around the room and see all my colleagues completely engaged and enjoying themselves so thoroughly in such a funny and uplifting experience. We in health care are engaged in a very serious business, but we often take ourselves too seriously. Your presentation really helped us look at ourselves a little differently, and remember some of the reasons why we have chosen our professions. Thanks again!"
--R.C., Laboratory Director, Poudre Valley Health System

Dr. Nieder is a pleasure to work with and I have highly recommended him to my counterparts throughout the country."

"WOW! What a great time we had with The Healthy Humorist®, a.k.a. Dr. Brad Nieder. From the moment the doctors started arriving for our annual holiday celebration, I knew that we were in for a treat! I was particularly impressed that he was able to bring smiles to the faces of all who attended--even those who are the last to laugh at anything! His wit rivals anything that appears on late-night television. I would highly recommend The Healthy Humorist® for any occasion that calls for continuous laughter and a great time. Our dinner this year was the best in many, many years. Dr. Brad made it a fun and enjoyable evening for all of us. We would not hesitate to bring him back for an encore."

You had the 500 participants eating out of your hand from the get-go....From your dog MD routine, to having fun with medical terminology...it was a laugh a minute. We had calls and letters from our members thanking us for this great event, and many said they hadn't laughed that hard in years!!! Of course, you do realize you have created a big problem for me now. You raised the bar...programs in the future will pale in comparison."
--J.T., Poudre Valley Aspen Club
"The subject of hospice typically does not coincide with laughter; however you were able to bring your tasteful sense of humor and the right touch of levity to our event. One of our guests left the comment, "Loved the dynamic of the laughter and the tears." Yes, there were tears shed because of other elements in our program, but I do believe that many of our guests were shedding tears of laughter! It was a joy for me to see how everyone was totally engaged and thoroughly enjoying your presentation."
--D.A.B., Annual Giving Specialist, Providence Hospice and Home Care Foundation
"Our company ... retained Dr. Nieder for the positive and informative nature of his message, the quality of his presentation, and his engaging delivery, all of which met the high standards of excellence required by all speakers retained and contracted by VPD.
Not only is Dr. Nieder a pleasure to deal with personally (both our exchanges prior to his appearance at VPD, and then on-site the day of his presentation), but also professionally at all phases of the process, which as speaker coordinator for VPDU is a quality both valuable and appreciated. Although a humorist, he communicates a serious message in a manner that really connected with our employees ... We were very happy with the results and the positive feedback.
It is because of these qualities and many others that I enthusiastically recommend Brad Nieder as a speaker—one with a winning message that is universal in importance and relevant to all. I would absolutely hire him again for another event in line with our program."
--D.M., Speaker Coordinator, VPDU
